Day One Hundred Seventy-Seven.

We found out the day Jason potentially leaves to come home from Iraq and it is later than I was hoping for or really wanting. I cant help but feel disappointed because it has been such a long time since I have seen my husband and adding another week + seems like so much more at this point. Not to mention having to call about the condo and everything else tomorrow and see if we can push it back.

I am trying to be positive and seeing this as the later he comes the less time apart on the other side when he leaves but I am just sad. I am SO ready for R&R. I cant wait to see my husband and have a real conversation that isn't interrupted or cut off. I want to lay in bed and discuss life and everything going on in our own. I cant wait to feel like a conversation has been fulfilling before it ends. Most of all I cant wait for that first sight of him and to feel him again as he wraps his arms around me.

Hurry up hurry up hurry up.

I feel your pain... my guy has been in Iraq since June and he was supposed to leave today for his R&R but the flight was cancelled due to sandstorms... :( He might not get another flight out for a couple days. So I'm with you when you say adding any amount of time is just awful. I haaaate this! But don't worry, eventually they'll all be home for good :)

I hear ya!!! We thought Sam was coming home on or before the 4th.... and now it might be changed to the 14th. 10 days may seem like nothing but it's everything after 15 months!

Hurry hurry indeeeeed! :)

Sorry about your R&R...but you're right! That's less time away once he leaves!!

Girl, I was in your shoes not too long ago. It's weird to describe how upset you get about 1-2 weeks. It makes you feel weak to have gone so many months without them, but now feel so let down about a couple of weeks. If it makes you feel better... those last couple of weeks went by really fast for me. I was fully expecting them to be the longest weeks of my life.

Keep your chin up... he will be home soon... and it will be GLORIOUS! :)
